Abstract

This project describes and assesses three different dam construction techniques: concrete-filled cellular sheet pile cell; float-in; and roller compacted concrete. A model was designed to help a client, entry-level engineer, and engineering firm understand the factors associated with specific site locations that help choose the appropriate dam construction technique. Stantec Consulting Service Inc. will use this model in the future during the preliminary assessment process for dam rehabilitation projects along the Kentucky River.
